raised so far



Tackling food insecurity for care leavers, young asylum seekers and youth recovering from homelessness.

We delivered our first 15 boxes!

On Monday, we delivered our first MAZI meal boxes to 15 local disadvantaged young people. 


We bought all our vegetables from our local, East Street Fruit Market and then headed down to renowned chef, Josh Eggleton's new restaurant, The Pony North Street to get packing. 

Bianchis also generously donated some fresh pasta and in general we have had such great support from the local Bristol food scene. Including the people behind michelin starred restaurant BOX - E, Feeding Bristol, Bristol Food Union and so many more!  

I can safely say, each box was made with a whole lot of love, no plastic packaging and a filled with tasty, nutritious meals. 


All of our boxes are solely dependent on this fundraiser until we are able to get more funding as we grow. So, a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has donated so far! You are make these amazing boxes extra special and changing vulnerable young people can access and connect with good food in Bristol!


Any donations big or small is such a big help and please share this far and wide to make sure we can keep spreading the power of food to those who need it most!! 

Thank you, 

Melanie x
